Bangladesh went into lunch at 92 for 4 on Day Three of the second and final Test. Playing at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, Bangladesh did reasonably well to survive against the wrath of the South African pacers, especially after slumping down to 147 in the first innings.

After taking a five-wicket haul on the second day, Kagiso Rabada rocked Bangladesh s top-order. He had Soumya Sarkar caught on a mere 3. Duanne Oliver then joined the act and removed No. 3 Mominul Haque. Amidst the fast-bowling storm, Imrul Kayes decided to play his natural game before the duo of Rabada and Oliver pin him down. He scored 5 fours a six before Rabada had him caught behind for 32.

Captain Mushfiqur Rahim gave his all to resurrect the innings. However, after being hit by a ferocious bounce, Rahim lost his concentration and could add 26 runs to the total. He took a review for the lbw appeal, but the replay showed that the ball would have clipped the off-stump. With his wicket, umpires decided to take lunch.

Bangladesh trail by 334 runs, while South Africa need 6 wickets to seal the series 2-0.

Brief scores:

South Africa 573 for 4 decl. (Aiden Markram 143, Faf du Plessis 135; Subashis Roy 3 for 118) lead Bangladesh 147 (Liton Das 70; Kagiso Rabada 5 for 33) & 92 for 4 (Imrul Kayes 32; Kagiso Rabada 2 for 18) by 334 runs.
